Inflight Planespotting, Thanks to JetBlue Fly-Fi

Inflight Planespotting, Thanks to JetBlue Fly-Fi

Civil aviation
How’s this for an AvGeek irony: it’s hard to planespot from a plane. Sure, while you’re on the ground there’s tons of aircraft around. But once you’re in the sky you’re zooming by other planes so rarely — and so quickly — that it’s hard to catch any of them. But one recent flight I took was a fun exception to that rule.     Thanks to a winter wave of employee COVID infections and a high-profile system meltdown, Jetblue had a tough past year from an operational perspective. But they rebounded from those issues, and their onboard economy product still shines strong — especially the free high-speed inflight internet (“Fly-Fi”).   Fly-Fi is one of JetBlue’s major points of differentiation, and they know it To minimize touch points in the C...
Cabin Crew Bulletin 1969

Cabin Crew Bulletin 1969

Planes and Girls
BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation, the precursor to British Airways) Cabin Crew Bulletin, June 1969.

It was the best job I’ve ever had and I’m still so sad that it’s over. I met the best people and had the most fun with my pals. I miss gossiping on night flights when everyone else was asleep, flying over London at night time (and hearing the important words: 10 mins till landing!!) and going into the flight deck and seeing views you don’t usually get to see. I can’t wait to get back flying this year - the world looks better from above! 🌍 ✈️" ©️📸@louise.rudkin Source
